    I like the motel because it is simple and clean. And I can park close to my room so no lugging things around from car to room. Good price. I just wish the people upstairs would have turned off their TV during the night. But that is not motel's fault, just disrespectful tenants. I will definitely come back to El Rancho Motel.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Terrible, wall air conditioner and whole wall in window vibrated every time air conditioner went on, no chairs except one rocker, one small table, no closet area only about a 1 foot hanging area above a little table.

    As advertised and i was happy. This property is not for everyone. It is older and a retro vibe, but clean and price was right. This is not a resort but good for overnight when on the road. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

    Best Sheets Ever!

    The room served its purpose after being on the road for several days. I have to say though, to my surprise, the bed sheets were the softest, most amazing sheets I’ve ever felt! So much so that I had to ask a staff member about them, but unfortunately they didn’t know. All they said was that the owner ordered them from down south. I’d love to know what type of sheets they were & where I can get a set because they were simply heaven! Thank you.

    Not great, not bad

    This place was okay. The comforter was a bit dirty and the WiFi literally did not reach the motel room. But for some small motel, the bed and sheets were very soft and comfortable.

    Needs improvement

    Holiday Weekend with my daughter, we arrived late at night, and it was very nice from the manager to leave the key in the mailbox. The staff are very friendly and very cooperative with my concerns or issues about the room. The price was expensive for what we experienced. Decent size room, convenient parking just outside your room door. Bathroom was small, but ok. The bed mattress was very comfortable. The rest of the bed needs taking care. Wifi was not reliable. Small pretty motel, one floor building. Location is pretty good, not on the main road, but close enough to eateries and coffee shops. I will stay again, but I will inspect very well the room top to bottom to make sure it is a clean place, not only for this place but all that I will stay in the future.

    ECV annual weekend

    Husband and I stayed for the weekend, brought our dog, no problem. Property was quiet, as well as the rooms. Room was clean, and we were informed that if there was anything we needed that wasn't in the room due to covid restrictions to just let them know. We have stayed here before, and will definitely stay here again. Jason and his staff are awesome!

    The place was ok. Friendly staff. First I noticed the stain on the bed cover. Crystal at the office was quick to exchange it with new cover. Next I noticed ants in the bathroom. They provided us with ant trap but it didn’t work. The second day I told them that ants are still present but because they were busy I offered to vacuum and mop the floor hoping that it will help rid the ants. The ants never went away and spread even more to the rest of the room on the floor. The light by the inside door and the ceiling fan flickers. Ceiling Fan need dusting. Missing cover on exhaust fan. Coffee maker not working.

    Very comfortable, nice bed/sheets/and pillows. Good AC unit. Very walkable to shopping/restaurants. Only improvement would be if Wifi worked better in our room, couldn't get a signal from router.
